Legendary British music producer Trevor Horn is in mourning following the death of his wife.
The Buggles star’s longterm partner, Jill Sinclair, passed away on Saturday at the age of 61.
She had been suffering from cancer but never fully recovered from a shooting accident in 2006 which left her with brain damage.
Sinclair, who was a successful record label boss and her husband’s business partner, was accidentally shot in the neck with an air rifle by her son and spent three years in a coma. When she woke she was unable to move or speak.
Following her death, Horn paid tribute to his wife in a statement: “Jill was an inspiration in every aspect of her life, as my wife and as the mother of our children. She had an adventurous, maverick spirit and built up music businesses – and made her way through life – successfully and independently, and always on her own terms. She will be sorely missed.”
Former Spandau Ballet star Gary Kemp also honored Sinclair after hearing news of her death, writing in a post on his page, “RIP the great Jill Sinclair. One of the most successful people in the British music business. A legend.”
